Dr James Muldoon
I am a senior lecturer in political science at the University of Exeter and Head of Digital Research at the Autonomy think tank.
My latest work is on the politics of digital technology and how we can recover forgotten ideas from the past to help us rethink our digital future.
My book Platform Socialism: How to Reclaim our Digital Future from Big Tech proposes a range of alternatives for how digital platforms could be organised.
My other research interests include labour movement history, socialism, republicanism, democratic theory, and 20th-century European philosophy.
My teaching focuses on how people can be empowered through greater skills and knowledge to act collectively and strengthen their communities. I offer courses on political theory and a variety of skills for social change such as political communication, public narrative, situation analysis and project planning.
I write for a range of non-academic publications which you can find on my Writing tab.
You can also check out my YouTube channel, Political Philosophy, which introduces viewers to thinkers in the history of political thought.
